About the designer
Over 45 years have passed since founder Roger Saul first sat down at his kitchen table in rural Somerset, England to craft leather belts by hand. His hometown housed both perspective and inspiration, as the trees Saul passed on a daily basis birthed the Mulberry name. His sister drew the iconic tree logo that embosses countless leather accessories worldwide today.
Originally focusing on tailoring leather only, Mulberry launched its first womenswear line in 1979. The label perfectly balanced skilful heritage with contemporary class, never letting the mainly British ethos out of sight. Johnny Coca stepped up as creative director in 2015, providing an international outlook that celebrates the iconic city-meets-countryside allure.
The Spanish-born designer grew up watching Madonna and The Cure, sparking his love for fashion. After studying design and architecture in Paris, he learned the ropes at both Louis Vuitton and Céline. At Mulberry, Coca pushes boundaries while still honouring the label’s heritage. His aim to put function first results in both practical and aesthetically pleasing bags, such as the praised Clifton and Maple bags.
